Title: Bury the Lead

Of course the whole team is together in this latest mystery, but there turns out to be...complications.
A body is found on Bromley Mt, there are multiple small explosions and fires in a warehouse, and then a trailer trucker explosion.
Are they related? Who are the people involved and what are their connections? Is there even ONE motive?
This is really one of Mayor's best: people, the towns involved, and his team. Plus, a new kid on the block - help or hindrance?
Joe's team, so many personalities - and yet they work sooooo smoothly to solve every little thing, like even the Ebola outbreak!

— From Linda's Past Picks - 5


Joe Gunther and the VBI team are investigating a murder and an arson case—both potentially related to an outbreak of ebola.

When the body of a young woman is found near a trail at a popular ski mountain, the case falls to Joe Gunther and his team at the Vermont Bureau of Investigation (VBI). They quickly have a suspect, Mick Durocher, and a confession, but not everyone on the team is convinced. Despite Mick’s ready admission, investigators quickly sense there might be more going on than is immediately apparent.

At the same time, a large local business is being targeted with escalating acts of vandalism—a warehouse fire, a vandalized truck, a massive cooling system destroyed—resulting in loss of life. And either by coincidence, or not, Mick Durocher, the self-confessed murderer, was once employed by this very company.

These two puzzling cases—now possibly connected—are further complicated by the sidelining of a key member of VBI, Willy Kunkle, who undergoes surgery at a hospital that appears to be having an unlikely—and suspiciously timed—outbreak of Ebola.

Joe and his team pursue these cases, uncovering motives that might link them, while proving that trust betrayed can be a toxic virus, turning love into murderous loathing. Indeed, behind the mayhem and murder, Joe must uncover a tragic history before another victim dies.
